Following the Arab Spring of 2011, which brought down Mubarak in Egypt, US seemed to outsource much of our Syria political policy to the ancient capital city of Ankara, Turkey.
But now that all our efforts have proven unable, or incapable of convincing that Syrian dictator to adopt reforms, Americans must insist that our leaders formulate solid plans for that entire region.
As the situation in the middle east continues to grow increasingly difficult for US, with IRAQ, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and with Israel and Egypt at odds. Now Libyan rebels are pushing forward in their fight to unseat Moammar Qaddafi, the climate of general disorder threatens every one of our past, present, future military and diplomatic efforts.
Is this a bottomless pit of endless problems? Can we solve them? Are we wasting lives and funds?
